Every year, Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15. This year, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) will work with federal and non-federal partners to disseminate information about disease prevention, health promotion, and share the latest recommendations for Latinos related to COVID-19.

The observance theme, Esperanza: A celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope, encourages everyone to reflect on all the contributions Latinos have made in the past and to look forward to the future. It is also a reminder that we are stronger together. Visit the OMH Hispanic Heritage Month microsite, available in English and Spanish, for more information, downloadable materials, and resources throughout the observance month.
